HOLSTER FOR THE SMITH AND WESSON NUMBER TWO ARMY REVOLVER

$450.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 172-5391

The S&W Number 2 Army Revolver was immensely popular in the Civil War and the early west. Although only .32 caliber, their metallic rimfire ammunition meant there was no fumbling for percussion caps or worry if wet weather had ruined one’s ammunition. From 1861 to 1874 well over 70,000 were made and acceptable Civil War serial numbers run to about 35,000. Famous personalities such as Custer and Wild Bill Hickok owned them, and more than one Civil War enlisted man proudly showed off his for the camera.

This holster is black leather, is set up to hold the revolver in the military butt-forward fashion and also has a full military style flap that fastens over a brass stud. The holster body still retains the form of a revolver in it. The color is good, with crazing but no finish loss. The toe plug and belt loop are present and secure. The belt loop was modified with addition of a D-ring and snap-hook, something we have seen on a few other examples, but is scarce.  [sr]
